Matheus Fellipe Costa Pereira (born 5 May 1996) is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays for German club 1. FC Nürnberg on loan from Sporting CP as a right winger.

Club career[edit]

Born in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Pereira moved to Portugal at a young age, joining Sporting CP's youth system at the age of 14. On 18 January 2014, whilst still a junior, he made his debut as a senior with the B-team, coming on as a 46th-minute substitute for Cristian Ponde in a 1–1 away draw against C.D. Trofense for the Segunda Liga championship.[1] He scored his first goal in the competition on 7 March of the following year, contributing to a 4–3 home win over C.D. Tondela.[2]

Early into the 2015–16 season, Pereira was first called to the main squad by newly appointed manager Jorge Jesus.[3] His first competitive appearance took place on 1 October, as he started in a 1–1 draw at Beşiktaş J.K. in the UEFA Europa League.[4] Late in the same month he scored his first goals as a professional, helping defeat U.D. Vilafranquense in the Taça de Portugal (4–0, away)[5] and KF Skënderbeu Korçë in the Europa League (5–1, home),[6] being subsequently selected for the latter competition's team of the week.[7]

In the 2017–18 campaign, Matheus was loaned to fellow Primeira Liga club G.D. Chaves.[8] He scored seven league goals during his spell (eight overall), helping to a sixth-place finish.[9]

On 31 August 2018, the last day of the summer transfer window, Matheus joined 1. FC Nürnberg on loan until the end of the season[10][11] after criticising José Peseiro's choice of not selecting him to the first match against Moreirense F.C. on social media.[12] He made his Bundesliga debut 16 days later, playing 61 minutes in a 1–1 away draw against SV Werder Bremen.[13]
